The U.S. International Trade Commission has banned the import of several DMR radio models manufactured by the Chinese company Hytera. According to Newsline, the ITC ruled that the radios infringe on numerous Motorola patents. 

Models include the MD652 (pictured at left), MD872, BD302, BD362 and BD502, as well as two repeater models, the RD622 and RD892. 

Hytera says it is replacing those models with its new "i-Series" products, which it insists do not infringe on any patents.
